The Corporate Health Teamcoach (short «CH-Teamcoach») is an e-Coach for leaders and their teams to improve working conditions and team climate.

The e-Coach guides team leaders through several coaching modules, by means of a virtual coaching dialogue. It is a generic tool that enables diverse groups of occupations and sectors to engage in a team development process. Simultaneously, it is a learning tool based on machine learning principles: Based on online feedbacks and change in working conditions over time, the underlying coaching rules are adapted, so that the team leaders progressively receive customised support.

The e-Coach is developed together with scientists of the University of Zurich (Div. POH EBPI). The Swiss Cadre Organisation (SKO) and the University Hospital of Zurich (Nursing and Allied Health Professions Office) accompany this development with expert and process knowledge. The Commission of Technology and Innovation (KTI) finances the project. «Corporate Health Solutions (CHS) GmbH» – a  Spin-Off of the University of Zurich – disseminates the release version of the e-Coach.
